Journey of an Art Quilter

Creative Strategies and Techniques

Journey of an Art Quilter is as much about motivation and inspiration as it is about teaching technique. In this bold, vibrant book, Barbara Olson guides readers through her personal evolution from traditional to art quilter, while offering encouragement and advice.

Barbara shares the creative excercises she has designed to help quilters tap into their own individual style and free their creative spirit. She then walks readers, step-by-step, through the details of the inventive techniques she's developed for use in her own award-winning art quilts, including drafting spirals and machine 'air' applique.

From any stage of the creative process, Barbara leads her readers on their own evolutionary journey--teaching them the joy and freedom of pursuing their passion for quilts by tapping into their distictive energy and trusting their intuition.
